I do not really know why I like this series so much, as well as other BBC costume dramas. I think it is a combination of great acting, meticullous attention to details, great stories and of course, beautiful costumes!
It is also a longing for a time that has gone by, a past that has been. Of course I realise that past times were only fun for a hand full of (mostly rich) people, but I do feel the romance of past times.
|That lovely couple Mary and Matthew. I grew to like Mary very much and I just loved their romance|
|Isn't she beautiful?|
|That other amazing couple, Mr. Bates and Anna. They are just wonderful and they have such chemistry!|
|The times are changing and poor Branson will have to find his way around the upper classes. Playing cricket is not something he ever thought he would be doing.|
|Poor Carson sometimes finds it hard to keep up with all the modern inventions.|
|Beautiful and elegant.|
|The three Crawley sisters together. I really admire what work the costume department did|
|Although it is nice to see that the Countess is thrifty, here she wears a hand-me-down.|
|As you can see, Louise Lombard in the House of Elliot wore this coat first! (that was also a great series, by the way!)|
